Recall of Certain Birth Controls

At the start of this week, birth control pills Lo/Ovral®-28 and Norgestrel were recalled voluntarily by the manufacturers due inexact packaging and out-of-sequence pills.  According to the release, the defects in this products are not detrimental to your health, but these defects can cause unintended pregnancy, and the out-of-order sequencing can upset your hormonal balance.  If you are currently using one of the defected lots, you should revert to non-hormonal contraception and return the packages to the pharmacies.  For more information and to reference the exact lot numbers, click here.
